GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
15.3 In no event shall Pipeline be responsible for over-pressure protection
on Shipper(s) facilities.
16. MEASUREMENT & MEASUREMENT EQUIPMENT
16.1 Determination of Quantity. The quantity of gas received and
delivered by Pipeline for Shipper's account hereunder shall be measured
according to Boyle's and Charles' Laws for the measurement of gas under
varying pressures and temperatures with deviations therefrom provided in
Section 16.1(i) below and shall be determined as follows:
(a) The unit of measurement for the purpose of service under any of
Pipeline's rate schedules shall be one (1) Dt. The number of Dts delivered
shall be determined by multiplying the number of cubic feet of gas received or
delivered, measured on the measurement basis hereinafter specified, by the
total heating value of such gas, in DTs per Cubic Foot, and by dividing the
product by 1 million (1,000,000).
(b) The unit of quantity for the purpose of measurement shall be 1 Cubic
Foot of gas at a temperature of 60º Fahrenheit, at a pressure of thirty-three
hundredths pounds per square inch (0.03 PSI) gauge and an atmospheric pressure
of 14.7 PSI, resulting in an absolute pressure of 14.73 pounds per square
(c) The unit of weight for the purpose of measurement shall be one (1) pound
mass of gas.
(d) The average absolute atmospheric pressure shall be assumed to be 14.7
pounds per square inch.
(e) The temperature of the gas passing through the meters shall be
determined by the use of electronic transducers, recording thermometer or
other temperature measuring devices. The instantaneous measurement from the
electronic measurement equipment or the arithmetic average of the temperature
recorded each Day shall be used in computing gas quantities.
